Forty years done come and gone my oh my!
This is a typical show of the period...which means totally fucking awesome! The boys were really on a roll in Summer '74. Some of my all time favorites come from this period. Love the unique jazzy jams and that Wall of Sound mix.
This one has showcase versions of Playin' and Scarlet, some of the finest versions of these tunes come from this period.
The real reason to pick this show over others with similar setlists, is the unique one-time-only transition between Spanish Jam and Eyes. Bobby playing loose and lively with Keith pounding away on the Fender Rhoads electric piano, I love that funky sound he gets! This also happens to be Keiths birthday and he definatelty appears to be enjoying himself. Billy snapping away on the snare and Jerry just nailing it to the wall as he was so apt to do in the mid-70s. A transcendent moment that deserves it's place in the Hallowed Hall of Immortal Grateful Dead Jams.
The only reason this show doesn't get five stars is due to such stiff competition during the 72-74 era.

Unlike the poster before I think Keiths playing starts out fairly well ('72-'74) after that he tends to be too simplistic (check out 5/7/77 for an example of him just kinda hitting very easy keys) IMO can't beat Pigpen. But This show is AWESOME! My favorite dead years are 76 and 77, but this may make me change my mind the jam in Playing is super trippy and definitely has me on another planet. Jerr kills every jam in this and Phil is also having a solid night. one negative, I wish they jammed more to jack straw

74' is one of my favorite years for the dead. I actually researched what years Keith used the Fender Rhodes and its mostly heard in 74'. He's obviously monster on the piano with things like Tennessee Jed and Deal but I love his style of rhodes playing on Scarlet and China Cat. He's a very colorful player, perfect for the Dead.

you have to love the zeal of the first reviewer...though this is quite a popular show from '74, i agree that the WRS>Spanish Jam>Eyes is one of the very best jams of the year.
but don't overlook the Deal, Scarlet, He's Gone, U.S. Blues, or Playing in the Band..this show is great from beginning to end!

the jams are great and Phil's bass tone is just how I like it, nice and thick. The way they drop into Eyes is perfect and smooth, nice Phil solo there in Eyes too....

There's a lot of energy here, but it's not the tightest Grateful Dead performance I've ever heard.

W.R.S JAM/LET IT GROW/SPANISH JAM/EYES JAM
Monster Jam Jerry and Phil drop bombs. Oh my God, how was this jam overlooked?Jerry and Phil are on fire,Jery and his guitar left orbit and you can hear him take over the universe the cosmos bow to him,45 minutes of Garcia at his absolute best.Phil rattles and defys gravity on his solo in Eyes,he throws the earth of her axis.Jerry starts using hi wah and it sounds like a ufo lifting off.I think this could be their best jam ever.Nothing compares,youhave to hear this to believe.As it goes on it gets better and better,this is their most trippy spaced out jam I have ever heard,THIS IS THE SACRED CRYSTAL JAM FROM THE HEART OF KARMA. This show has to be released, forget Road Trips, whoever is in charge of the SACRED DEAD ARCHIVES this is what we whant, jams and shows like this. Garcia doesnt miss abeat, that guitar is probally a smoking pile of ashes!!! Phil drops all kinds of vibrations the band is playing at their best!!! Get this sounboard,and sit back and get readdy for lift off,How could this one slip through the cracks? That was the most incredible jam I have ever heard, My mom has been going and taping shows all of her life,so have I and we both think this is the HOLY GRAIL, Thank YOU JER for letting us find and expierience this JAM>is so hot Please release so heads that cant get to it can at least buy it, really you should just give it away THATS HOW JERRY WOULD WANT IT, PEACE LOVE S.E.P.A. Russell Angely There is no way to rate this jam can you rate a force of nature??
